Why choose our seed?
Plant breeders produce improved varieties, improved varieties produce a better lawn.
The certified seed varieties, mixtures, and blends we sell are your assurance of a superior lawn that will beautify your property for years and years to come.
Through the science of conventional plant breeding, turfgrass breeders select individual grass plants for quality, color, density, resistance to diseases and insects, tolerance to heat, cold and much more.
After years of selection and natural cross breeding of the strongest and most attractive plants, the new seed variety is examined by two independent expert panels to verify 1) uniformity, 2) uniqueness, 3) stability, and 4) eligibility for seed certification.
Remember, inferior turfgrass seed will never produce a superior lawn no matter how much time, effort and money you invest after planting.
February Turf Tip
Pre-emergent Crabgrass Control
Warning: Do not apply pre-emergent crabgrass control unnecessarily.
As a rule of thumb NEVER apply pre-emergent crabgrass killer unless you had crabgrass in your lawn the previous season, no mater what your lawn service or the advertised 4 step programs promote. It is unethical to apply a herbicide unnecessarily.
Crabgrass is an annual weed. It dies in the winter and grows again each spring from the seeds produced by the previous generation of crabgrass plants.
This simplest and most effective way to control crabgrass is to apply a pre-emergent herbicide to your lawn early in the spring (before the forsythia plant blooms). This will kill sprouting crabgrass plants before they reach the surface.
A properly applied pre-emergent crabgrass killer will prevent crabgrass from growing in your lawn and producing seeds, which means you will not have any crabgrass seeds in your soil following spring, which means there will be no need to apply pre-emergent crabgrass killer next year.
Marketing companies spend a fortune convincing you that an annual application of crabgrass preventer is required to keep your lawn free of crabgrass. Nothing could be farther from the truth.
